March My Paper Pumpkin

 This has to be a FIRST! I actually got my box open before the next one arrives..hehe.  I LOVE THIS KIT! At first I thought it was going to be too labor intensive, but it wasn't and I love the look when it's finished.  Of course I did two of the them the way the kit was originally intended to be, but for this one, I added the "quotation bubble" to the front of a card made of Crushed Curry and Basic Black.  I cut the card in half from the kit and used the pattern part to make the layer just under the thank you.  I popped it up on Dimensionals.
 Then I punched flowers from the Boho Flower Punch in Cherry Cobbler and added some Basic Rhinestones.
And then after I did that, I decided to add the arrow sticker that comes in the kit to it and I liked it better with it.
Did you know that if you sign up as a MPP customer, you get to purchase PAST kit refills! If you are not a MPP customer and would like to try it, contact me! Don't miss another month of fun in a box!

Butterfly Friend

 Finally finished posting them all from March.  Now that tonight is my last class of April, it's about time. LOL! This one was the favorite by far for alot of my card makers.
 I cut the butterfly out using the Framelits (see update on the availability at the end of this post) and then using the "negative" part to place a piece of Smokey Slate behind that I had ran through the Big Shot using the Lovely Lace embossing folder. I then punched out a Silver Glitter Heart using the Small heart punch and then tying a Bermuda Bay Baker's Twine bow to the heart.
I stamped out the sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink, the stamp set is a photopolymer stamp that was introduced in February(it's not in either catalog) called Banner Blessings.
I punched a row of hearts using the Hearts Border Punch into Melon Mambo cardstock.

**Update on the Butterfly Framelits:

We have received notice from our supplier that the container with the Butterflies Thinlits Dies was finally unloaded from the ship; however, there is a shortage of trucks, which has delayed the container being picked up. We have secured a truck to pick up the container, and, as of now, it is scheduled to be delivered to Stampin' Up! on Friday. We will post an update as soon as they are available.
Thank you for your patience and flexibility as we continue to await their arrival!

Giggle Greetings

 Wow! I'm slipping big time! Good Monday morning! I just realized, that I missed TWO cards from March card classes(now that it's time to post APRIL!LOL). This card was alot of the most popular and most loved.  I always love my Giggle Greetings...I love the color scheme on this too. I used Blackberry Bliss with Pool Party, Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango(and a hint of Smokey Slate).
 I colored the cat in with Crushed Curry marker.
I punched the flower from the Boho Blossom punch, the center from the 1/2" circle punch.
